Lot of great stuff in this thread.

Anyone got a good workflow for making their own, and want to share their wisdom?

Venam, the one that you posted is especially nice. Here, take my screenshot as a gift.

Hey venam, you have a link to the flower tile? The old links are dead.

I dumped all the tiles I had on my drive:

https://dump.uninformativ.de/v/b287557057/

Note that this link expires in three months. But there’s a link to a ZIP at the bottom of the page, so it’s easy for you to grab them all and maybe mirror them somewhere.

@ramiferous: The flower is this one: https://dump.uninformativ.de/v/b28755705...er/635.png – “thayer” indicates they’re from Thayer Williams. Not sure if he made them or just posted them.

One of those things that started out as a “simple shell script” and has now reached the point where you probably want to rewrite it in another language: https://www.uninformativ.de/git/bin-pub/...index.html

There's an Xorg bitmap (xbm) editor, I forget the name of it. I found some old scrots where I had hooked it up to a script to preview the bg on every edit. Only useful for monochrome bg's tho: https://imgur.com/a/YVgHNt4

script was stupid simple, something like:

Code:
while inotifywait -e close_write ~/out.bmp; do

    convert out.bmp /tmp/result.png
    # convert /tmp/result.png -resize 140% /tmp/result.png
    feh --bg-tile /tmp/result.png
done

Nice, and this script would work well with other programs such as pixelorama which is quite nice. This is perfect, thanks!
